20. You Should Compromise Your Schedules
This one is a no-brainer! When two people come together and try to organize their lives around each other, there are going to have to be some adjustments.
It shouldn’t be up to one person to completely reorganize their schedule to fit into the other person’s life, but the onus should fall on both equally to work out a diary or calendar that suits everyone.
Usually, this means being prepared enough to make time for each other while still maintaining work, friends, family, hobbies, and a little rest. It can be complicated, but it’s a compromise that’s necessary for the survival of the relationship.
19. You Shouldn’t Compromise Your Values And Beliefs
When you’re with the right person the communication should flow and there really shouldn’t be anything important you can’t talk to each other about. While it’s okay to have discussions about your beliefs and values with your partner, especially if they differ, it’s not okay for your partner to demand that you change those things to suit them.
Values and beliefs live right in your core and are a package deal as part of who you are. Not everyone’s going to agree with or accept them, but as long as they’re not harmful, the person you commit yourself to should.
